Our Confirmation program is about finding one’s own voice of faith to express doubts and fears as well as affirmations and certainties. Our small groups provide an opportunity to explore faith and learn why we do what we do as Christians and believe what we believe as Lutherans.
At the end of this 3 year journey, youth will affirm their baptism and the promises of Christ Jesus in their life as they stand before the congregation and claim these baptismal promises to be their own: 1) to live among God’s faithful people, 2) to hear the word of God and share in the Lord’s Supper, 3) to proclaim the good news of God in Christ through word and deed, 4) to serve all people, following the example of Jesus, 5) to strive for justice and peace in all the earth.
We believe that these things are what Christians do as a joyful response to the Good News that Jesus died and rose again for our salvation.
These three years of Confirmation are about spending intentional time learning the basic, core, and fundamental beliefs of the Christian faith by asking a lot of questions and seeing how we live out our baptismal promises. Confirmation is not the end of religious instruction but the beginning of an adult life of faith in the Church.
